Good fitting and comfortable
I have a wide forefoot and a wide calf, so for years I have had trouble getting boots that fit well.. These boots are custom fit, in that the outer shell is heated up, you put on the liners and step into hot boots, which are then done up and you stand up and wait for them to cool a little before moving around. AS I have trouble with boots tight around the calf a heel lift was fitted. I also had custom footbeds made to help with arch support. With all this done I found the boots comfortable and pain free throughout my ski trip. The closures allowed good adjustment and boots enabled good control. these boots are easy to get in and out of, and are the first boots that have not caused foot pain. The liners are comfortable, and warm and do not get over damp from sweating feet.

Superb design and comfort for the intermediate skier
Having hired boots for several years these made my ski week so much more enjoyable.

Good all round!
Just returned from a week-long ski trip with my new ski boots & very pleased with my purchase! I was very relieved as I have dodgy feet (bunions, neuromas, etc) and was hoping my money wasn't going to be misspent, but I had no problems as the boots were moulded to my feet so all in all great fit & very comfy. Not sure it improved my skiing, but very pleased I didn't have to do my usual ski boot rental swap after the first day!

This product fits ladies with smaller feet and ladies calves.
What can I say? From the amazing fitting including a turn in the oven to mould them to my feet, these boots are just the bees knees. They are just so comfortable and, importantly, if you have to carry them around, so light! I've spent too many ski trips slopping around on the slopes in hire boots that are too big for me. I'm a four and a half foot size and the hire shops rarely seem to have an adult size boot that fit both my feet and calves and I usually end up with them trying to give me a child boot or an adult boot of a larger size. These boots are designed to accommodate a grown up calve size and boy do they work. They stayed dry and warm through out my recent ski trip and I'm sure they got me faster down the slope. Bravo Salomon, bravo Snow and Rock who gave me a good price on them and fitted them correctly. Well happy.

Generally very comfortable but possibly with a manufacturing fault in my pair.
The wrap around cushioning meant to cover the sharp plastic outer edge of the tongue on the Right boot was insufficient and although most ski-ing was comfortable, it dug the bone just above my ankle on mogul fields and on severe braking. I correct this by wrapping a strip of Elastoplast around the edge of the foam liner hauling it back around the hard tongue plastic. This helped a lot but I think I was unlucky to get a boot like this. I have taken it back to Snow & Rock and they are in the process of the dealing with it. I did not get the boot Heat moulded at the time of purchase; maybe this could have helped although I doubt it because there didn't appear to be sufficient padding at that point.

I really didn't want to have to make this purchase as I have had my old ski boots for 20years, using them at least annually in that time and loving them a lot! I did however get persuaded by the Ski Set guys that my much loved boots were about to die with potentially cold and uncomfortable consequences for me. I therefore deliberated for a long time one afternoon in Snow & Rock, Chertsey with the most patient, helpful and knowledgeable assistant over my new boots. I can report that they are BRILLIANT. I have tested them appropriately in Chamonix in fantastic off piste as well as on. All promises about fit and comfort were true and they felt like my new best friends by the end of the week! Thank you S&R for your help and advice the product was fab! The Salomon moulded fit really worked and helped to ensure the same level of comfort and movement as my old boots - I could even walk reasonable distances - v relevant in Chamonix!

Like skiing in slippers
I enjoyed my best week skiing with these boots. They delivered on both comfort and performance. Fab service from snow & rock and can't wait to ski again!
